Russia as other nations got own laboratories where to experiment with deadly viruses and vaccines.
We already wrote about Fort Alexander, and now let’s write about other laboratories like Vektor, a Research Center of Virology and Biotechnology localized at Novosibirsk in Siberia.
A Russian scientist, Antonina Presnyakova, working at Vektor died after accidentally sticking herself with a needle laced containing Ebola virus.
This lab is also financed by foreign companies, like the American Antibody Systems, based in Texas.
This case is similar to another one occurred at Fort Detrick nel Maryland, but the scientist, another woman, did not contract the disease.
Further to Ebola Virus, Vektor stores also HIV, Swine flu, Smallpox and Black Plague viruses.
NOVOSIBIRSK, September 16. The clap followed by fire occurred in the Novosibirsk virological center “Vector”, which is engaged in the development of vaccines and medicines.
An employee of a contracting construction organization who was taken to the hospital was injured, he was assisted and transferred to Novosibirsk burn center with burns of the lower extremities, “said Krasnikov.
The head of the scientific city emphasized that the incident does not pose any biological or any other threat to the population.

Now Vector is developing diagnostic and treatment tools for infectious diseases and is under the supervision of the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare. Specialists of the center, in particular, are developing vaccines against swine flu, HIV infection and Ebola.
Another Dangerous Research Center of virology and Biotechnology is Plum Island, New York, United States.
Plum Island reminds of Aafia Siddiqui, or one of the evidences to set up her.
In the bag she was carrying, the police found numerous documents in English and in Urdu, which described how to build explosives, chemical weapons, Ebola notes, dirty bombs and Radiological agents (debating the mortality rates of some weapons) and written notes by hand, referring to a “mass attack” that lists various American locations and landmarks (including the Plum Island Animal Disease Center, the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Wall Street, the bridge of Brooklyn and the New York subway system).
The Globe also cited a document on a “theoretical” biological weapon that could harm children, absurd. Also, reported by documents on American military bases, excerpts from a manual on the use of explosives, a digital storage device of a gigabyte containing over 500 enemy electronic documents and discussing the recruitment of jihadists and their formation), maps of Ghazni and housing of the provincial governor and of the nearby mosques, and photos of members of the Pakistani forces. Other notes describe various ways to attack enemies, including reconnaissance drones, the use of underwater bombs and gliders.
